FAQ’s:

Why should I get a ski or snowboard service?

Your skis will always perform best when they are brand new. Over time, scratches can appear on the base, which creates an uneven surface which will slow you down. Maintaining the base of your skis will ensure you glide as fast as possible across the snow.

How often should I get a ski or snowboard service?

We recommend that you should have these serviced after a full week’s use. Don’t hesitate to bring them in when you have come back from your holiday, ensuring you’re prepared for your next one.

Seasonal Recommendations:

Pre-season: We advise you bring your skis/snowboard in to be assessed by our expert team before hitting the slopes. If they have been lying around in your garage or loft then this may have incurred some damage, nothing a professional service won’t fix!

Post-season: Had a blast on the slopes over the season? Bring your prized equipment back in to see us afterwards to ensure that they stay in tip-top shape while in storage. We recommend that you get a lay-up service and apply extra wax so your skis or snowboard do not dry out while being stored away.
